Take your business to the next level with our 6-week immersive, virtual programme.

Did you graduate from university in the past five years? If so, do you resonate with any of the following statements?

  • I’m running a start-up with high growth potential that I’d like to take to the next level.
  • My business is doing so well I’m looking to take on my first employee.
  • I’ve already built a six figure business - getting that to seven figures is the next challenge.
  • I’m in the research phase of what could become the next Welsh tech “unicorn” 
  • I’d love to see my products sell globally, working on exports is next for me.
  • I am a graduate returning to Wales to grow my business.
